Jangbang - Korean/Mexican tacos at Bar at College/Bathurst - reviews?

  • y

I walked by this place yesterday as I was in the Bathurst/College area. I saw a sign out front saying they serve Korean/Mex tacos. Having heard of similar type of food in food trucks in LA, etc I am kind of curious how the food is there. From the Yelp reviews it sounds kind of sketchy:

Just wondering if any CHers have been there?

Sounds like they do have cheap drinks

  1. Is this the place that says "Korean Taco Bar" out front? I passed by that the other day and meant to ask here about it. Would love to get more info.

      Yeah, same place. There is also a write up on BlogTo about it here:

      Only open from 7pm to 2am and sounds more like a bar vs a restaurant

        I walked by a few months ago and noticed that. Also, the menu was very small and very pedestrian as far as Kor-Mex food goes (Bulgogi Burritos, Spicy Chicken Tinga Tacos, that's about it). It did not inspire me to try it out.

          Yes, I'm waiting for someone else to take this particular bullet. Preliminary word from a friend was to pass...

        1. We attempted to try it out on Friday. Stopped in around 8 and were told they'd totally run out of all of their food. I suppose that's a good sign, will try again another time.

          1. I went during their Twitter promotion and quite enjoyed their food. Portions were a little small for one of my friends (a guy) but fine for me. Prices are good. It is more of a bar than a restaurant but if you are looking for some food while drinking, it's a decent choice. The beef bulgogi tacos were my fav but the pulled pork was good too. Chicken could have been spicier.
